Here are the Red Light Cameras in Wantagh-Seaford

Red light cameras are a hot topic in Wantagh-Seaford.

When you get notified of wrongdoing in the mail, they send you a photo of the infraction. If that's not enough, you get a link to watch the video as well.

The Nassau County Department of Traffic Safety released a list of the current red light cameras up around Wantagh-Seaford, which you can see below.

Here’s a look at 12 intersections with red light cameras:

  • Bellmore: Merrick Road and Bellmore Avenue
  • Bellmore: Newbridge Road and Bellmore Avenue
  • Merrick: Merrick Road and Merrick Avenue
  • Wantagh: Sunrise Highway and Wantagh Avenue
  • Levittown: Gardiners Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike
  • Levittown: Wantagh Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike
  • Levittown: Wantagh Avenue and Old Jerusalem Road
  • East Meadow: Hempstead Turnpike and Merrick Avenue
  • East Meadow: Hempstead Turnpike and Newbridge Road
  • Massapequa: Merrick Road and Park Boulevard
  • Massapequa: Sunrise Highway and Unqua Lane
  • Massapequa: Hicksville Road and Merrick Road
Christopher M. Mistron, the coordinator of the department, said there are no new sites in the works at this time.

If you see a traffic light, you should get control of your vehicle's speed so that you can stop if it turns yellow. Nobody should need a camera to enforce what they already should know about traffic lights. ............................................................................................. However, these cameras provide a good stream of revenue from people who do not drive as they should, and, I guess the cameras have some safety or deterrent value, over time. So, then there should be a lot more of them, to maximize the revenue and speed-up the learning curve toward safe driving. ............................................................................................. But the other thing that goes hand-in-glove with running traffic lights is speeding. So I think that all red light cameras should be retrofitted with speed control devices in order to catch drivers who speed-up to beat the light, instead of slowing down to stop at the light. ............................................................................................. The County should stop wasting time and money making and posting signs about camera enforcement. The ticket and the photo in the mail should serve as ample notice of anyone's poor driving habits. ............................................................................................. Finally, the Gardiners Avenue intersection with Hempstead Turnpike is clearly in Levittown, not Wantagh, and the last question posed to readers in the article: "Do you think they're a good think" could have used a little more attention to the editing, but I am sure we all got the gist of it. I mean I did, which is why I commented with what I think.

If anyone in the TOH/County reads this PLEASE consider adding camera's at the following multiple accident intersections in Seaford: YOU would make a FORTUNE and hopefully save a few lives and prevent some accidents... Southard(S. Seaman's Neck) and Merrick Rd Sunrise and Seaman's neck Sunrise and Washington- Sunrise and Jackson
